Hi there
My computer was acting really strange

it started when i couldn't get online... My wireless was disabled so i tried enabling WZC but it wouldn't start... a bit of investigation and something in the registry changed so I changed the value so one of the dependant programs for WZC would work too...

So i got online and opened firefox, everything worked fine but i noticed the computer was really really slow.
I tried to launch IE to see if firefox was being slow but it kept hanging when it started. I looked in task manager and closed everything down to see if that sped things up. I found a file called hldrrr.exe and did some research but couldn't find anything conclusive to delete it.

I've tried regrun but it oculdn't find it and none of my AV software works

I tried installing combofix but the program wants to start
Hijackthis does'nt want to load either and again says its not a win32.exe application
i installed autoruns but i can't get into safe mode as it blue screens half way and restarts

I'm really not sure how to sort this so please help :S

cheers

Hello and welcome. Running those 2 at this time won't help us. What is your Operating Sya=stem (XP,2000 etc..)?
These are safe to run on all systems.
If you cannot access safe mode than run in normal mode.


Please download SmitfraudFix,by S!Ri

Double-click SmitfraudFix.exe
Select option #1 - Search by typing 1 and press "Enter"; a text file will appear, which lists infected files (if present).
Please copy/paste the content of that report into your next reply.

Note : process.exe is detected by some antivirus programs (AntiVir, Dr.Web, Kaspersky) as a "RiskTool"; it is not a virus, but a program used to stop system processes. Antivirus programs cannot distinguish between "good" and "malicious" use of such programs, therefore they may alert the user.

One or more of the identified infections is a Trojan which comes with a nasty rootkit componet. Rootkits are very dangerous because they use advanced techniques as a means of accessing a computer system that bypasses security mechanisms and steal sensitive information which they send back to the hacker. Many rootkits can hook into the Windows 32-bit kernel, and patch several APIs to hide new registry keys and files they install. Remote attackers use backdoor Trojans and rootkits as part of an exploit to to gain unauthorized access to a computer and take control of it without your knowledge.

If your computer was used for online banking, has credit card information or other sensitive data on it, you should immediately disconnect from the Internet until your system is cleaned. All passwords should be changed immediately to include those used for banking, email, eBay, paypal and online forums. You should consider them to be compromised. They should be changed by using a different computer and not the infected one. If not, an attacker may get the new passwords and transaction information. Banking and credit card institutions should be notified of the possible security breach.

Although the rootkit has been identified and may be removed, your PC has likely been compromised and there is no way to be sure the computer can ever be trusted again. It is dangerous and incorrect to assume that because the rootkit has been removed the computer is now secure. Many experts in the security community believe that once infected with this type of malware, the best course of action is to reformat and reinstall the OS. Please read "When should I re-format?" and "Reformatting the computer or troubleshooting; which is best?".

Should you decide not to follow that advice, we will do our best to help clean the computer of any infections but we cannot guarantee it to be trustworthy or that the removal will be successful. Let me know how you wish to proceed.

Your decision as to what action to take should be made by asking yourself the questions presented in the "When should I re-format?" link and whether it is worth the effort as described in the "Reformatting the computer or troubleshooting; which is best?" link. Reformatting and doing a clean install of the OS removes everything and is the safest action but I cannot make that decision for you.

Reformatting a hard disk deletes all data. If you decide to reformat, you should back up all your important documents, data files and photos. After reformatting, as a precaution, make sure you scan these files with your anti-virus prior to copying them back to your hard drive. Don't forget you will have to go to Microsoft Update and apply all Windows security patches.

Also see "How to keep your Windows XP activation after clean install".

If you need additional assistance with reformatting, you can start a new topic in the Windows XP Home and Professional forum.

OK so i decided to format

What i did was put all the files i needed in a seperate folder, virus scan that with homecall online and it was clean, put that folder on an external drive and start the reformat but get this! When i boot with the windows disc provided by the laptop maker, it loads all the drivers and says options i.e. install windows, repair, quit
i click install and it says Unknown device found (i,e, there was no hard drive to install the software onto)

i then get a BSOD :flowers:

Wow this virus is absolutely sickening!
The sicko that made this virus should be put in jail :thumbsup:

Problem solved!

I've thrown the laptop in the bin
can't reformat the hard drive
can't reinstall windows
can't use it because it's compromised security...

So what can you do?

I hope the person that made this virus dies a slow and excruciatingly painful death, preferably by having his or her genitles singed slowly then be burried alive just like the episode of CSI except this time the feds don't find em...
